    Pros

    Easy to set up an account and get started. You set your own pay, and choose which postings you respond to.

    Cons

    You have to rely on people responding in a timely manner, which can be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe come up with some way where job posters have to say yes or no in a timely manner.


  2. "Great company to freelance for"

    Pros

    Great company to freelance for, but it takes a while to get recognized as a good freelancer for clients to pick so you have to take lower paying jobs until you can establish a good rating to charge a higher premium for the jobs you're willing to do.

    Cons

    Some of the lower wage freelancers from other countries will make the bid prices so low that it's not viable to even apply for the position. And the set limit of connects (even with the premium membership) don't really work when an individual only has so many opportunities to apply to a position each month and take a small fee with no reputation established.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the connections feature and go back to the old ways.
